Aaron Rodgers trade with jets and packers should be finalize this week
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Jets and Packers have just resumed trade talks for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
According to Rapoport, no transaction is imminent at the moment,
but the sides are negotiating and hope to reach an agreement this week.
According to Adam Schefter, the two teams have not had substantial trade conversations about Rodgers since the owner's meetings a couple of weeks ago.
Despite indications for several weeks that the two sides were close to a deal, Schefter stated that the teams appeared to be "dug in" on their respective positions for the time being.
While the Packers would like to receive picks in exchange for Rodgers to use this year — and there may be an unpleasant situation with minicamp in May if Rodgers is still on the roster — Schefter reports that Green Bay is willing to move Rodgers after the draft if necessary.
It's worth remembering that if Rodgers were dealt after June 1, the impact on the Packers' cap would be less severe. However, there aren't many options for spending that money at that point, and the Packers would lose a second-round pick this year.
